The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a nationwide organization dedicated to helping American youth realize personal success and achievement through a nautically oriented training program. There are around 400 Sea Cadet units in the United States, with units in nearly every state, as well as Puerto Rico and Guam. The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is also a participating member of the International Sea Cadet Association (ISCA), which provides opportunities for cadets to take part in training activities abroad. Through Sea Cadet leadership, your son or daughter will learn skills in basic seamanship and its naval adaptations, while also learning the values of patriotism, courage, self-reliance, teamwork, and accountability. Membership in the NSCC allows youth to sample military life with no obligation to join any branch of the armed forces. Should cadets decide to enlist in the Navy or Coast Guard, their training may allow them entry at an advanced pay grade. Historically, a number of Sea Cadets have received scholarships and appointments to military academies.
